Comic Konstantin Kisin censored by politically correct university shares some of his safe and non-safe gags

The School of Oriental and African Studies’ joke ban included “racism, sexism, classism, ageism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism.”
Konstantin, 35, who often tells gags about Russia, where he was born, turned down the gig.
He told The Sun on Sunday: “The American comedian George Carlin once said, ‘It’s the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately’.
“I could not agree more. A comedian’s job is to be funny.”
